2015 ABC 7 Holiday Toy Drive



ABC 7 Chicago joins forces with IHOP to present the 2015 ABC 7 Holiday Toy Drive benefiting Toys for Tots. Val Warner and Ryan Chiaverini, co-hosts of ABC 7's popular talk show, Windy City LIVE, will drive the toy collection effort. Now in its 3rd year, the toy drive will kick off during Windy City LIVE at 11am on Wednesday, November 11.

The mission of this campaign is to help make a child's holiday wish come true. To that end, Ryan and Val will encourage ABC 7 viewers to drop off new, unwrapped toys at participating IHOP locations before December 13. The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve will then distribute those toys to less fortunate children in the community.

Members of the U.S. Marine Corps, Gunnery Sergeant Jesus Castaneda and Sergeant Johnny Garcia, will appear on Windy City LIVE to talk about Toys for Tots on the 11th of November, which coincides with Veteran's Day.

U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots goal is "to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens."

The following is a suggested list of toys for donation: (Infant - Age 13)
